I am very lucky that where I live, in the main, road side littering by cyclists and the general public isn’t too bad.
(Fly tipping aside)
You do see the odd gel wrapper and banana peel along with MacDonalds drinks holder, but its not massive.
There are also regular picks both along the road side and the river bank near to my home. This is much appreciated and my kids and I plan to join in the a pick from the water in our kayak next summer.
Groupama/FDJ pro Anthony Roux has been a part of the pro peloton for years and has noticed more litter by the road sides of his training rides.
Some may say his attempts to get action on littering are attempts at launching a political career when cycling is over for him.
I prefer to see it as environmentally conscious and would like to share and back his initiative.

We all have a part to play in being the solution, not the problem.
